Contest Prep

Contest Prep is a 20 week program that is aimed at the serious athlete who wants to train hard and enjoys the process of truly one-on-one coaching with daily support, monthly calls, video feedback and education. Programs are tailor made to meet the goals of the athlete and address their specific physique needs and lifting abilities. Care is given to help each client improve their form and technique in the gym through video correction and instruction, and all Tulum Strength Club athletes are encouraged to become skilled lifters.

Offseason Bodybuilding

Our powerlifting program is 1-on-1 based, using individualized periodization. Each athlete submits videos submitted via WhatsApp by True Coach for analysis, and will learn to evaluate their own lifts and understand how to monitor rate of perceived exertion. Each program will be structured to correct technique, build up joint integrity, movement mechanics and prevent injury.

One on One Private Coaching

If you are traveling to Tulum, we invite you to come visit our gym for in person private coaching. Both Michelle and Jean-Jacques are available for this, but as our time is limited, we will need two weeks notice to accommodate you. Please let us know in advance what you wish to cover in your sessions so we can maximize your time.
